InfoBesides a beautiful clump it is an outstanding breeder for pie-crusted edges in blue, green and gold depending upon partner. By doubling up parents that both relay pie-crusted edges, parents are 'Sea Frolic' x kiyosumiensis, you can take this one in several directions. 'Sea Frolic' lends its blue breeding potential especially when crossed with better blues. It is fertile both directions, used primarily as a pollen parent thus far.
